Bonus Track Of The Day: J. Mascis
J. Mascis release the new solo album Several Shades Of Why on March 14. To mark this occasion, he provides a bonus Track Of The Day. Check out all Tracks Of The Day here.
This is an acoustic album from the Dinosaur Jr. master, giving a new slant on his musical persona. Says the man himself:
“Megan from Sub Pop has wanted me to do this record for a long time. She was very into it when I was playing solo a lot in the early 2000s. She always wanted to know when I’d do a solo record. Several Shades of Why came out of that.
“There are a couple of songs that are older, but the rest is new this year. And it’s basically all acoustic. There’s some fuzz, but it’s acoustic through fuzz. There’re no drums on it, either. Just one tambourine song, that’s it. It was a specific decision to not have drums. Usually I like to have them, but going drum-less pushes everything in a new direction, and makes it easier to keep things sounding different.”
